Default Velvet Antlers

This afternoon I got to see something that most people will never see in a lifetime. Even though it was not the biggest but I got to watch him rub his velvet off.

You all seeing many bucks this year down in southeastern MO? I'm just not seeing them. A good buddy of mine who hunts about 25 miles away from me, has plenty of bucks on his property. Not sure what's wrong with my herd, not like there's any pressure out there at all... and I'm out in the middle of NO where with plenty of woods all around. I'm just flat not seeing any mature bucks period.
